Are you just trolling here?

IF you ever boated on this lake and I do most every weekend, it is quite apparent by what they wear as clothing. You also get to know what boats are rentals and also the PWC as well.

For your next post, no I'm not racist just observant, when they come racing towards you and obviously oblivious to the rules of boating, because you only need a credit card no license required it catches your attention.

Go troll elsewhere...annoying as ever!

No, just a red f150.
He has his truck backed in with an empty trailer and sits in the truck with a clipboard.
At one point he had three vehicles with empty trailers occupying the launches while people waited in line.
He is running a rental company from the launch and ties his boats up to the dock.
Apparently the city has been notified several times but refusing to do anything.

I find communicating with those users works best.

Some look at you when you ask are you going in or out. Then explaining your intentions, and I'd rather not get in your way changes their view. There will always be those who just can not wait their turn and
think it's all about them.

BC Boat License is required to operate a personal watercraft.

Rental goons should be checking this and only providing a service to customers with a valid license. And it should be enforced on the water. No license = impound the boat. That would fix lazy/stupid boat renters and give the good guys who know what they're doing a decent business advantage.

You are not required by law to have a boaters license when renting.
That is clearly advertised at all rental locations and websites.

Q. What if I rent a powerboat or PWC?

A. Currently, a Pleasure Craft Operator Card is not required in order to operate a rented watercraft. Instead, it is sufficient for a renter to complete a rental safety checklist. Take note however that some companies have made it their corporate policy to require renters to have their Pleasure Craft Operator Card.


http://www.boaterexam.com/canada/faq_rules-en.aspx

You have been mislead or did not read further down your link. Read other exemption, if you are non-Canadian resident not necessary.

Q. What if I don’t live in Canada, but boat there?

A. Non-residents only need to obtain a Pleasure Craft Operator Card if they are operating their powered boat in Canadian waters for more than 45 consecutive days or if the boat they are operating is registered or licensed in Canada (this includes rented boats). Boater Education Cards or equivalent certifications are recognized in Canada. Proper identification should be kept on board at all times to provide proof of residency.

Jeez my bad - no wonder it's such a gong show on the lake each summer. I got my licence because I thought it was going to be mandatory and I only rent a boat once every couple of years.

A troll because I have only posted 6 times, with 5 likes on your little whine forum? If the city isn't smart enough to ensure boat rental companies pass on the wake restriction to renters then thats their problem.

Really though, the licenses don't mean a lot. Someone else did mine for me online because they got a few "tests" for one price. They just filled in my name and it was sent to my house.
Poof, I have a boaters license.

Do the ones who over exaggerated the boat traffic and wake damage throughout the weekend have a wind and damage assessment available?
